What's happening in Phase 2 of public engagement?

The ten municipalities in the Calgary Metro Region are working together to develop a long-term plan for managed, sustainable growth in the region. Between July 24 and September 4, 2020, the Calgary Metropolitan Region Board (CMRB) asked members of the public to help identify common values from residents across the region to better understand the common benefit that regional planning can provide.

Over 3000 people visited this website to learn about the process and we received nearly 1600 contributions that were used to help shape the proposed approach to manage growth in the Calgary Metro Region as we plan for the next million residents.

Now we’re asking you to take some time to learn more about what’s being proposed and tell us how your community and way of life might be affected, for better or for worse. Visit the Discussion Forums to share your thoughts about what the proposed approach might mean for you and your community.

Leading regional planning expert Peter Calthorpe and the team at HDR|Calthorpe are recommending the proposed approach, which applies a core belief that successful places – whether neighbourhoods, counties, towns, urban districts, rural districts or metropolitan regions – must be diverse in uses and users, must be scaled to the pedestrian and human interaction, and must be environmentally sustainable.

What’s being proposed for the Calgary Metro Region is to manage growth differently than we have experienced in the past. Through higher density, more redevelopment, shared servicing, a greater mix of place types and collaboratively planning for “transit ready” development along future transit corridors, we hope to reduce land consumption, save money, and realize the benefits associated with regional planning.

HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED

Click here to watch the recording of our November 17 virtual open house.

Take the Survey to tell us what we need to keep in mind in planning how we might implement what’s being proposed.

The proposed approach has three key characteristics: Place Type Allocation, Transit-Ready Corridors, and Joint Planning Areas. Check out the FAQs to learn more about what’s being proposed, how the proposed approach was developed, including how public input helped shape the proposal.

What part of the Calgary Metro Region are you from?

We want to hear from people who live, work, and play in all parts of the Calgary Metro Region. 


Please take a moment to let us know where you spend most of your time in the region.
CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Inner City Calgary is where I live; however, work generally helps me move through the entire region.
